Q: If I leave the skunk alone will it just go away?

A: Not before it does significant damage. Once a skunk lives in your attic it will usually stay. Skunks leave their feces and urine in the insulation and soffit areas and if the skunk sprays in the attic it is very difficult to get rid of that smell. If that skunk ever leaves other skunks will be attracted to that smell and make your attic their new home.

Q: A skunk had babies in my attic. Will the baby skunks leave when they get big enough?

A: A baby skunk’s eyes do not for about one month. After the second month the skunks are weaned from their mother. Skunks are generally solitary, so when they reach the age of four months they are full grown and should leave.

Q: Why is skunk removal important if they are in my attic?

A: Skunks will do significant damage in your attic and can be very expensive if they are not removed. They will destroy your air conditioning duct work and ruin the dry wall. Skunks leave their feces and urine all over the insulation and if startled will spray a horrific stench from two glands next to the anus. This produces a strong and unbearable smell that is extremely difficult to get rid of. Skunk removal is essential to prevent costly damage in the attic.

Q: I have skunks living in my attic. There is a very strong smell coming from my wall. What is it?

A: Skunks produce a terrible smell when startled. The skunk will spray a foul-smelling oil through the nipples that originate from two glands next to the anus. If the skunk has sprayed in the attic then a very strong smell will take over the home. Also, the skunk could have died in the wall and a dead animal removal needs to be performed to get rid of the smell.

Q: A skunk died in my attic. If I leave it there will the smell go away?

A: The smell of a dead skunk will not go away for a very long time. Skunks are known for their foul-smelling characteristics. It is always important to get the dead animal removed professionally. The smell can be dangerous for someone with respiratory problems and any ecto-parasites that were living on the skunk need to be exterminated. Allstar Animal Removal will remove the dead skunk, exterminate the ecto-parasites and deodorize to reduce the smell.

Q: Is skunk removal necessary?

A: Skunks can look very cute but are also very dangerous. Skunks are the number one carrier of the rabies virus on the west coast. Rabies is 100% fatal if untreated. If a skunk bites or scratches someone the skunk must be trapped, have its head cut off and sent to be tested. If the skunk cannot be trapped then the person who was bitten or scratched must go through a series of expensive rabies shots. Skunk removal is necessary and should be left up to a professional skunk trapper at Allstar Animal Removal.

Q: Is trapping the skunk the only way to do skunk removal?

A: Trapping skunks is the most effective way to remove skunks. There are other methods that are used for skunk removal but they are not as effective and sometimes inhumane. Some companies will use poison and not only is it illegal but the animal will probably die in a wall and produce a terrible smell. Then a dead animal removal will be necessary. Other techniques such as sounds and smells rarely work. If they happen to work then that animal is still around and has a chance to come back. The skunk needs to be trapped and relocated far enough away that it will not come back.

Q: Why do skunks dig small holes all over my yard?

A: Skunks will feed on small insects like grubs and worms. The skunk will dig small holes in your yard, mulch, garden, ext to seek out their food source.

Q: Are skunks dangerous?

A: Skunks can be very dangerous. Skunks are the number one carrier of the rabies virus on the east coast. Rabies is 100% fatal if untreated. If a skunk bites or scratches someone the skunk must be trapped, have its head cut off and sent to be tested. If the skunk cannot be trapped then the person who was bitten or scratched must go through a series of expensive rabies shots. Skunks will often spray pets like cats and dogs and the smell can induce uncontrollable vomiting. Skunk trapping should be left up to the professionals at Allstar Animal Removal.

Q: I found a baby skunk in my attic. What should I do?

A: First call Allstar Animal Removal to perform an inspection of the attic to make sure the mother skunk is not still up there. If the mother skunk is up in the attic then we well trap for that skunk. We will take the baby skunk to an animal rehabilitation center where it will be raised.

Q: Once the skunk is removed how do you keep more from coming back?

A: Once all of the skunk trapping is completed then Allstar Animal Removal will do a full exclusion on your home. Any areas the skunk was getting in your home or could possibly get into your home will be closed off. Allstar Animal Removal uses the best materials and any full home exclusion for skunks comes with a one year guarantee.

Q: I saw a skunk walking around during the day. Does that mean it has rabies?

A: Not necessarily. Although mostly nocturnal, skunks sometimes utilize daylight to target a specific food source that is only out during the day. Mother skunks that are nursing will often forage during the day as well. Anytime a skunk looks sick or acts unusual call a professional trapper like Allstar Animal Removal or your local animal control.

Q: How many babies will a mother skunk have?

A: Skunks will have litters ranging from 2 to 6.

Q: I hear noises in my attic. Could it be a skunk?

A: Yes. Skunks dig dens but are also commonly found in attics. An attic is an ideal shelter for a skunk. The noises in the attic could also be from rats, mice, opossums, raccoons, gray squirrels, flying squirrels, large lizards, birds, or bats.

Q: I saw a skunk go underneath my house. Should I have the skunk removed?

A: Yes. Skunks will dig dens under a home and can climb up walls into the attic creating significant damage. If a skunk enters your house you should always have the skunk trapped and removed.

Q: What kind of bait can I use to attract skunks?

A: Skunks are omnivores and will eat a wide variety of foods. Each individual skunk can have its own preference. A certain bait that works for one skunk might not work for another. The professionals at Allstar Animal Removal are familiar with different baits and techniques to adapt to different situations.

Q: Something made a big hole in my air conditioning duct work. Was it a skunk?

A: Its is possible that a skunk could make a hole in the a/c duct work. Raccoons, opossum, rats and squirrels are also notorious for digging holes in a/c duct work. Let a professional at Allstar Animal Removal perform an inspection and determine what animal did the damage.

Q: How long will it take to trap a skunk?

A: Each skunk trapping session is different. Allstar Animal Removal usually traps skunks for two weeks but may have the problem solved in the first night. There are multiple factors that take place in skunk removal to determine how long it will take to trap the skunks.

A: Yes. Call Allstar Animal Removal for different options in removing the skunk.
